Is this some species of Tumbling Flower Beetle? If so, can anyone tell me which one? Thanks.

Greenthumb, it sure looks like it with the pintail! Sorry I don't know which species.

It is indeed a tumbling flower beetle, but I would hesitate to make a specific i.d. from this image - there are species in the genera Mordella and Mordellaria that can have similar appearances...
